Linux drivers for Oscilloscopes and Data Loggers

Linux Demand for Linux applications is growing steadily in the networking and scientific communities. Linux offers powerful networking and internet facilities, is very robust and there are NO LICENSE FEES!

Pico now provides Linux drivers for several products, and is working on drivers for the remaining products. The drivers were developed for Red Hat 6.0, and are being tested for compatibility with Red Hat 5.2.

Drivers for serial port products

The drivers for these products take readings continuously and update a block of shared memory. Application programs running on the same computer can get readings by simply accessing the shared memory. Other computers can get readings via an IP network. PicoLog running on a Windows computer can remotely access readings measured using a Linux computer.

A typical application is remote monitoring, via an existing IP network and Linux servers, for a number of computer rooms.

Drivers for the Enviromon stand alone data logger

The Linux EnviroMon agent accepts IP messages, forwards them to the logger and then returns the response to the caller. The agent can handle requests from multiple callers-both local and remote- and is fully compatible with EnviroMon agents for other platforms. EnviroMon for Windows can access a remote logger via a permanent IP network or via a dial-up connection. Because the EnviroMon logger can store readings, it is particularly suited to operation using dial-on-demand connections, as data can be transferred daily, or hourly, as required.

Typical applications include weather monitoring at a remote radar installation.
